Hi, I recently purchased a Coastal that I fell in love with. I’ve never kept a snake because Army life. But worked reptile removal in Louisiana while in high school and have been herping my whole life across North and South America, the Middle East and North Africa. So this fella acts like he is terrified of the hide I bought him. He will nose in about an inch, then shoots straight back like he seen a ghost. Also do any of you have a thermostat that you would recommend? I need it to have day and night setting that is reliable because I work in law enforcement and my job keeps me away from home for 18 hours or so about 3-4 nights a week. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. --- Automatic Post Merged, Jun 29, 2019, Original Post Date: Jun 29, 2019 --- This is his current setup.
